Scott's Vitamin C Pastilles


I bought a bottle of Scott's Vitamin C Pastilles from Guardian Pharmacy for Sharlene a few months ago. She already finished the first bottle and this is actually her 2nd bottle, which I purchased from the pharmacy last week. I’m not too sure of the retail price but I got it for RM9+. The bottle contains 50 pastilles of mixed berries (blackcurrants, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries) flavour. Everyday after dinner I will give her 2 pastilles of this to chew. She loved this tasty and healthy snack very much and would always ask for more. However, I can’t accede to her request, as the recommended dosage is 2-3 pastilles per day only. Apart from vitamin C Sharlene is also taking Scott's Emulsion cod liver oil. She has been taking cod liver oil since she was 1 year plus. While everyone at home hates the smell of this stinking fish oil, Sharlene enjoyed taking it so much that she would slowly savor and lick the cod liver oil from her spoon. Sometimes she even spilled and stained her clothes with a few drops of fish oil. After that, she really smells 'fishy'...haha! :D

Anyway, I really hope that these 2 supplements can help Sharlene to build up her body's natural resistance against infection and also help her body maintain good health.

I give my son the orange flavoured Scotts emulsion. He loves it and no fishy smell. Also, give him Appeton multivitamin and the Vidaylin minibear with garden vegetables since he hates his greens.

Doreen: I think Ryan is too young to take this pastilles. As u said, he might choke on it. Cod liver oil would be good for him :)

Olive: yeah, the orange flavoured is so much better than the original taste. Wah, your boy also takes quite a lot of supplements, eh?

Kylie: I knew about this vitamin not too long ago.

Irene: the texture is soft and chewy. It tastes good too. Go get one and let your lil missy try it.

Slavemom: exactly, I can't stand the smell too. *bleh*...
